Rolfe credits RST online masters for success

Dr. David Rolfe is an assistant professor of recreation management at Central Washington University and a 2013 graduate of the Recreation, Sport, and Tourism online masters program.


"The University of Illinois Online Masters of Recreation, Sport, and Tourism was a transformational degree for me. I knew that I wanted to continue my education, and eventually go on to doctoral work. The online RST degree allowed me to complete the M.S. while I continued to work from my home state. Illinois online faculty and advisors were attentive, skilled, and knowledgeable, and the reputation of the university is highly regarded."


"The degree ultimately qualified me to receive several offers of doctoral admission and assistantships. My education has now included regional comprehensive, online, and research, thus giving me a diverse and unique perspective that I utilize as a current professor of Recreation and Sport management at Central Washington University."
