The case study method, one of the qualitative research approaches, is used in the research. The study group consists of 15 pre-service teachers studying in the last year of the Department of Social Studies Education at Faculty of Education in Kırşehir Ahi Evran University. Data collected through semi-structured interviews were analyzed using the MAXODA 2020 software and inductive content analysis method. As a result of the research, preservice social studies teachers stated that the Character and Value Education course is a course that teaches basic human values and aims to contribute to social order.
