This study focused on the analysis about the relationship between pre-service teachers' EQ levels and epistemological beliefs. The sampling consisted of 209 pre-service teachers studying at Hacettepe University, Faculty of Education. The data were collected through "Epistemological Beliefs Scale" developed by Schommer (1990), which was adapted to Turkish by Deryakulu & Buyukozturk (2002) along with the "Emotional Intelligence Scale" developed by Schutte, Malouff, Hall, Haggerty, Cooper, Golden & Dornheim (1998), which was translated into Turkish by Gocet (2006). The findings were used to evaluate the relationship between pre-service teachers' EQ levels and epistemological beliefs. The Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of "EIS" was found to be .81. The reliability coefficient of "EBS" was determined to be.80. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
