Special features regarding teachingThe course is closely linked to theory and practice through special forms of study. In addition to the traditional course content, the contemplation of the theological, ethical and academic diaconal dimensions of social work forms a course focus. Through intensive exchange programmes with partner universities, primarily in Europe, we have a strong international focus in studies and teaching. Inclusion of research-driven learning, teaching in manageable seminar units with direct discussion with the lecturers, supervision of the learning process, development and improvement of self-reflexiveness.

Special features regarding research and developmentThe Institut für Angewandte Forschung (Institute for Applied Research, IAF) at the Evangelische Hochschule Ludwigsburg is available to staff members and students alike as a competence centre for research with a range of resources and expertise. It also groups and coordinates research activities at the University and is the public face of these activities. The content and methodology of the research projects carried out at EH have an inter-disciplinary and multi-perspective approach that demonstrates the different research issues and research traditions of the staff members.
Integration of theory and practiceAll courses contain a direct link between research and teaching: Concepts of research-based learning underlie the structure of key modules. Academic work is developed as a reflection of research-based social work. Practical components in modules are characterised by research-oriented questions; teaching content is linked to current research projects. Students are given a chance to participate in projects and use the infrastructure (advice, software, training in methods) for their own research.

Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsAccess to the Social Work programme can be made possible through the hardship provision. The individual need of assistance is considered upon request and upon meeting the requirements for all exams with the advisory support of the disabilities representative (equalisation of disadvantages). Also, the students also have priority in course enrolment. The stakeholders group “Unlimited” (students with need for assistance and accessibility representatives) meets regularly in order to play an active role in the development of an accessible university through initiatives, applications, etc.
Characteristics of diversity advancementThe profile is characterised by an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, cross-religious and diversity-oriented focus of the course. Apart from the enshrining in the curriculum the topics of diversity, gender, migration, accessibility (enabling), poverty, etc., students, and also all employees, are supported by the university’s own institute in the further development of cross-cultural and diversity-related skills. In this context, a university certificate can be obtained if students have successfully attended a total of five workshops or seminars.
Other special featuresThe concept of the Career & Counselling Centre EH is based on career being defined as a process, a path. The task is about shaping it. A student’s career starts on the day he or she applies for enrolment; It is the university’s responsibility to equip students well for their future careers in subject-specific and personal terms, as well as to provide interesting ideas for their future careers through qualified courses and services. The university offers suggestions and support to this end.
