Studium Generale

Workshops for students

Additional qualifications such as social skills, communication principles and presentation techniques are growing in importance. Professional qualifications and profound knowledge and expertise no longer suffice if you want to make your mark in professional life.

For this reason, the DHBW Villingen-Schwenningen offers seminars in the area of social skills and PC classes for students outside the regular schedule. These essential qualifications enable you to master the tasks and challenges you encounter in your profession and studies more effectively and exploit this expertise to the full.

The DHBW Villingen-Schwenningen organises a varied programme for each term (semester), with the focus being on communicative and social skills and the identification of key qualifications.

Participation is free of charge and open to all DHBW Villingen-Schwenningen students in every study programme.


More detailed information on courses and registration can be obtained on our learning platform moodle.
