A winter term full of hard investigative work paid off for four journalism students who were recently published in the National Observer.

Second-year Master of Journalism students Joseph Tunney, Qais Azimy and Georgia Andromidas and fourth-year Bachelor of Journalism student John Gallardo had their piece published on June 10.

The project, “Rounding up glyphosate: Is there danger to human health?” explores the effects that the widely used herbicide, glyphosate, has on the environment and human health. They completed this project in an investigative reporting class taught by journalism professor Chris Waddell.

Over the past few weeks the students have been updating the story, confirming elements and working with David McKie, associate managing editor at the National Observer and long-time sessional instructor with the Journalism program.

The full story is available on the National Observer and Capital Current.
