Abstract: We present preliminary results of the study of pulsations of Be stars from CoRoT observations. CoRoT detected many pulsation frequencies in all observed Be stars, usually interpreted in terms of g-modes but sometimes also corresponding to p-modes. Even in late Be stars, for which the detection of pulsation frequencies is very difficult from the ground, because of their very low amplitude, the quality and precision of the CoRoT data allows us to detect many frequencies. Seismic models have not yet been calculated but the calculations are ongoing.
