Professional anxiety of pre-service teachers can be classified into three: Self-centered concerns, task-centered concerns and studentcentered concerns. The present study investigated the anxiety levels of pre-service teachers studying in the Department of Foreign Language Teaching, Department of Primary Education and Department of Fine Arts Education in Anadolu University. Moreover, the study attempted to find out what pre-service teachers do and suggest in order to overcome their debilitating anxiety if they have any. The results showed that Mathematics Teaching Programs experienced self-centered anxiety more than the pre-service teachers studying in the other Programs. For the task-centered concerns, there is a statistically significant difference between anxiety levels of pre-service teachers studying in English Language Teaching Program-German Language Teaching Program and Social Studies Education-German Language Teaching Program. Preservice teachers studying in Social Studies Education, Mathematics Teaching Program and Primary School Education Program experienced student-centered anxiety more than the other Programs. The second part of the study investigated solutions pre-service teachers offered in order to overcome their task-centered anxiety and what they think to do to cope with the problem which causes anxiety, the results are given in the conclusion.
