Chloe Swan

Journalism, 2023

Hi, my name is Chloe Swan. I am in my final year at the University of Canberra, studying a double degree of a Bachelor of Communications and Media (Journalism) & Politics and International Relations.

I am passionate about exploring the intersection of media and the international landscape, recognising that journalism is a powerful tool to shed light on important social issues and to promote positive change.

During my time at UC, I completed an internship at the Department of Industry, Science and Resources as a strategic communications intern.  This experience provided me with valuable insights into the practical applications of my studies.

I have also had some of my student journalist work published on The Owl, UC’s student journalism website.
