MUST HAVE for all students

The Studium Integrale teaches content from a wide range of disciplines to enable you to look beyond the boundaries of your actual field of study. The Studium Integrale is not a degree course in its own right, but a certified additional qualification on top.
In short: the challenges in professional life are increasing and tasks are becoming more complex. The broad general education in the Studium Integrale increases your ability to think in a networked way, to work in an interdisciplinary manner and to reflect critically. With more than 20 courses from three subject areas, Service Centre for competence-based & innovative Learning & Teaching (SkiLL) offers you the opportunity each semester to acquire a colorful and high-quality "bouquet" of interdisciplinary skills that will be of great interest to HR managers. Almost all courses include a workshop component (2-3 days) as well as a self-study component (e.g. preparation or follow-up work).
