(Student Profile)

Chloé Braithwaite

“I chose to study the Master of Future Journalism at Macquarie because although my background is in neuroscience and psychology, I want to develop my career towards becoming a science communicator in a research organisation. I chose this program because it covers all aspects of media. The smaller classes provide me with a more personalised experience and the program allows for a lot of practical experiences using the state-of-the-art facilities. When I complete my degree I will have experience in both software and hardware that are the industry standard, which will give me an edge in an already competitive field.”
