In this work, we study pseudo-Riemannian submanifolds of a pseudo-sphere with 1-type pseudo-spherical Gauss map. First, we classify Lorentzian surfaces in a 4-dimensional pseudo-sphere S-s(4) (1) with index s, s=1,2, and having harmonic pseudo-spherical Gauss map. Then we give a characterization theorem for pseudo-Riemannian submanifolds of a pseudo-sphere S-s(m-1)(1) subset of E-s(m) with 1-type pseudo-spherical Gauss map, and we classify spacelike surfaces and Lorentzian surfaces in the de Sitter space S-1(4)(1) subset of E-1(5) with 1-type pseudo-spherical Gauss map. Finally, according to the causal character of the mean curvature vector we obtain the classification of submanifolds of a pseudo-sphere having 1-type pseudo-spherical Gauss map with nonzero constant component in its spectral decomposition.
