dc.description.abstract Despite the curricula differences in science teaching, science educators tend to agree that the adequate understanding of the nature of science or an understanding of science as a way of knowing is a desired outcome of the science instruction. Many approaches has been introduced and contextualised in different situations. Some researchers argue that teacher preparation programs in the Arab countries do not expose the preservice teacher education students with epistemology and sociology of science, but merely focus on the scientific content knowledge. A study was conducted in the United Arab Emirates to find out the views about the Nature of Science (NOS) among Emeriti preservice teacher education students using the Views on Nature of Science Form C (VNOS-C). The paper reports the findings and suggests some possible areas of future research in this context. en_US
