Program highlights

"Live balance in your studies"

Lebe Balance is a scientifically based prevention program developed by renowned professors and experienced practitioners. Since fall 2013, it has been implemented as part of the AOK health offerings. A few years ago, the content was adapted to students and has since been successfully implemented, for example, at the KIT in Karlsruhe or at the university in Freiburg.

The seminar is a good mix of knowledge input, many practical exercises and lives from the active participation and the exchange of experiences in small groups.

The theoretical content is directly put into practice, tried out and applied to one's own life situation. This means that everyone can benefit from this seminar and take away helpful tips and tricks at the end to get through their studies and life in a 'healthier' way.

You will develop strategies to master your daily life with more composure and strength and to react flexibly to stressful situations, e.g. in your studies.

  • Mindfulness and inner balance: What about my inner balance? Do I find time for the things that are important to me? How do I deal with stress and can I bring myself into balance?
  • Values: Knowing one's own values and living by them is crucial for a person's mental health and prevents stress. We ask ourselves the following questions: Which values play a role in my everyday life? How well do I manage to live according to these values?
  • Social network: A good social network and good relationships with others can have a positive effect on your own health. What does my own social network look like? How do I manage to make new contacts? How can I cultivate and maintain existing relationships?
  • Mind traps and inner critics: We are often very demanding and critical of ourselves. We reflect on our thoughts and consider which are helpful and which are more of a hindrance. Which inner supporters do we have and how can we activate them?

The course starts on October 06 and will take place 7x from 17 - 18.30 in online format.

Project WORTSTATT for the second time at HHN: Join in and discover your language(s)!

This semester, HHN students and staff will again have the chance to discover the many possibilities of their language(s) together with experienced and award-winning authors on three Saturdays in the Studium Generale.

The project aims to help people of all backgrounds experience their language as a versatile tool and experience joy in literary experimentation with it.

The three workshop days will take place on Oct. 15, Nov. 19 and Dec. 17, 2022, as part of a cooperation with the Literaturhaus Heilbronn and the "WORTSTATT Heilbronn im Dialog" project anchored there.

What is the Studium Generale?

Improve your personal skills through the area of 'Personal Excellence & Culture': more effective learning, improvement of linguistic or written expression skills or career orientation and time management are just some of the diverse offers around studies and for the career entry.

But also a look at the areas of 'Ethics and Sustainability', 'Politics, Economy and Society', or 'Languages' is worthwhile. You can prepare yourself optimally for the semester abroad with language courses, for example. You also want to score with exceptional knowledge when applying for an internship? Then attend the courses 'Excel VBA Programming' or 'Communication and Conflict Management'.

You want more from your studies? You want to look beyond the horizon of your field of study? Then find out about the General Studies certificate. With the certificate you have a competitive advantage over your competitors when choosing your future career.
