The sample of the study is comprised of 560 pre-service teachers enrolled in different academic majors. Environmental Literacy Test (ELT) was used as an instrument to assess environmental literacy and MANOVA was performed to investigate differences of PTs’ environmental literacy in terms demographic variables. Findings of the study indicated that gender, year of enrollment, and academic major had significant effect on components of environmental literacy
