Self-concept plays a vital role in one's life. It becomes essential for the teachers to have a better concept of self which helps them to provide better services and learning opportunities to their students. Study was conducted to find out the self-concept among teacher trainees pursuing B. Ed. general and special education. Teachers trainees doing special education (n=55) and general education (n=42) were selected using a cluster sampling technique. The SelfConcept scale developed by Deo (1998) was used. Finding revealed that B.Ed. Special Education teacher trainees showed lower self-concept compared to General B.Ed. teacher trainees with a significant difference between both group (t=8.45, p=0.000).
