Intersections: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Thought

Intersections is a student journal sponsored by UVU's Integrated Studies Department which provides exemplary students from multiple disciplines the opportunity to publish in a peer-edited journal. Intersections is written, edited, and designed by UVU students and published each Fall and Spring semester.


Each editorial team makes its own decisions about what will be published. However, here is a summary of the type of work accepted and Intersections' mission as a whole:

Intersections includes work from any and all disciplines on campus. We accept written work including but not limited to poetry, prose (fiction and non-fiction), academic papers, essays, short plays, found poetry, and comics. We also accept art including but not limited to paintings (oil, watercolor, etc.), photography, comics, pottery, metalwork, printmaking, digital art, and collages. The purpose of Intersections is to give a home to excellent writing and art that may not otherwise have one and to create a unique interdisciplinary experience.

Submission Guidelines

  • Intersections seeks to publish outstanding senior thesis work from interdisciplinary programs in the state of Utah and the surrounding region. 
  • Submissions are solicited from all participating interdisciplinary programs through a faculty nomination process. Once submissions are gathered for a semester, they will be reviewed and selected for publication. 
  • Due to the journal’s interdisciplinary nature, authors may submit work in any citation style  appropriate for their discipline(s). The Intersections staff will convert all citations to Chicago format (17th edition) 

Get Involved as an Editor

Getting involved with Intersections is a great way to add practical experience to your resume or vita. You'll become familiar with the process of choosing academic and creative works for publication. You'll also learn to work as part of an editorial team to make submissions conform to publication standards. Finally, Intersections teams do the technical layout and design by themselves and this knowledge (using tools like Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop) is highly marketable.
