Immaculata University announces that Timothy Fallis, Ph.D., of Thorndale, PA has joined the faculty of the English/Communication Department as assistant professor of Communication.

As an expert on communication theory, social media, civic discourse, political rhetoric and advertising, persuasion, digital religion, and religion and media, students enrolled in Fallis’ classes will benefit from his vast knowledge.

In 2008, Fallis earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature & Liberal Arts from the University of Hawai’i at Hilo. He continued his education earning both Master and Doctorate degrees in Communication from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.  He also earned a Certificate in College and University Teaching while at UPenn.

Delving deeper into politics, Fallis has authored several publications on issues such as Finding Consensual Fact in Political Debate and Political Advertising.  He has also presented at national conferences discussing Religious Satire and the Digital Space, among other topics.

“I’m delighted to be serving in a school that is focused on teaching and the well-being of students. I really believe in the Catholic model of Liberal Arts education, how it means to turn out well-rounded citizens who are not only prepared to succeed in their careers but have also been given time to consider questions of spirituality and adult responsibility,” commented Fallis on his new position at Immaculata University.

Immaculata University is a Catholic, coeducational institution of higher learning, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
