The attitude towards scientific research is an indicator of educational quality in university education, being fundamental to consolidate every profession as a science. The objective of this study was to describe the attitudes towards scientific research of Peruvian students of the professional career of education. The research approach was a basic, quantitative, non-experimental design. The sample consisted of 494 university students. A sociodemographic form and the Research Attitude Index were used as instruments. The results show that students have a low attitude towards research. Likewise, they have a low level of self-evaluation; teaching influence and institutional influence of research capabilities, and students do not know if the university promotes the development of scientific production and do not know if the scientific training in their academic program is adequate. It is concluded that it is essential to promote greater visibility of the instances that develop research, also, teachers should have the pertinence of knowledge and experience to motivate a favorable attitude towards research.
