Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between global citizenship and self-transcendence in pre-service social studies teachers. Some psychological factors such as personality and self may be effective in the formation of the perception of universal citizenship. Therefore, the concept of self-transcendence, which is thought to affect the perception of global citizenship, was discussed in this study. The study group consisted of 175 pre-service teachers studying in the Department of Social Studies at a state university in the Central Anatolia region of Turkey. As one of the general survey models in quantitative research methods, the relational survey model was used in this study. Global Citizenship Scale and Self-Transcendence Scale were used as data collection tools.  Through the analysis, the global citizenship and self-transcendence levels of the teacher candidates were found to be moderate. Based on the findings of the research, it was concluded that self-transcendence could be an important predictor of global citizenship. In other words, pre-service teachers may be more prone to global citizenship as the level of self-transcendence increases.

Keywords: Self-transcendence, global citizenship, pre-service teachers, globalization, well-being
