Is there a way to disable hyphenation (splitting up a word) in all section and subsection titles (while leaving hyphenation in the main text unchanged)? They look a bit odd to me. Thank you.

The titlesec package offers an according option.

\usepackage[raggedright]{titlesec}

Details in the package manual. I guess the sectsty package has similar capabilities.

    And if You used titleformat from titlesec to style titles -- You can do it explicitly: \titleformat{\section}{\color{teal}\LARGE\raggedright}{\hspace{0.5cm}\thetitle\hspace{0.5cm}}{0cm}{} (note the \raggedright),

You have to control in template itself:

put \raggedright in the section:

\newcommand\section{\@startsection {section}{1}{\z@}%
                                   {-3.5ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}%
                                   {2.3ex \@plus.2ex}%
                                   {\normalfont\Large\bfseries\raggedright}}
