Reasonableness of program duplication: 1. Identify similar programs in the State and/or same geographical area. Discuss similarities and differences between the proposed program and others in the same degree to be awarded. Each of the programs listed below (see Examples 1-4) offer similarities and differences with that of MC s Digital Animation AAS degree. Each focuses on or includes animation/motion for the screen. However, with MC s degree, there is more of a specialization on 3D animation techniques and the artistry of graphics involved in the animation process, than the programs below offer. Additionally, MC offers Motion Capture, a sought-after skill, which none of the programs below offer. Our program would be both iterative and distinct from other programs in the state.

Provide justification for the proposed program. Digital animation is one of the most vital career fields in the entertainment industry with talented artists working on everything from animated films and television to video games and motion graphics, and most recently, law enforcement. Most animation positions require at least an associate's degree in animation or graphic design. Digital animation is not new, but the field is developing at a rapid pace. Montgomery College has the resources needed to provide students with the skills necessary for entry-level positions, or for transfer to four-year institutions. Graduates will help meet the current demand for entry-level animators by providing the degree they need. Montgomery College Digital Animation Associate in Applied Science_v2 Page 13

21 L. Adequacy of provisions for evaluation of program (as outlined in COMAR 13B ). Montgomery College (MC) assesses and reviews programs are on a regular cycle. The program assessment process is facilitated by Montgomery College s Collegewide Assessment Team (CAT) and follows a cyclical 5-year schedule involving assessment planning, data collection, results review, program action plan development and implementation, re-assessment and data collection. The cyclic loop is closed by using the assessments results to improve teaching and learning experiences. All courses and programs at Montgomery College have clearly stated learning outcomes. The program learning outcomes are aligned with and are supported by the student learning outcomes of the individual courses that form a degree s curriculum. Program assessment tools vary. For the Digital Animation AAS degree, the assessment protocol is detailed below. Two main assessment tools for the Animation Degree are final projects from the following two courses. 1. GDES 240 Animation 2: 3-D Modeling Final Project o Students will create at least two complex models that interact with each other or other objects in a specific environment. Simpler models should be created as objects to enhance the scene (such as a table, books, rocks, etc.). The subject matter will be proposed by students with sketches to the instructor prior to beginning on the modeling. The final output may be either an animation or a series of still images with 1440 frame minimum. 2. GDES 242 Animation 3: Motion Capture o Two characters interacting in a defined environment but this time the majority of the animation won t be keyframed animation but will utilize a motion capture performance. In order to do that, they will need to be able to create a complex character and rig it for animation and have their performance translate to the rigged character using motion capture, along with being able to create environments and miscellaneous assets. These two projects assess all of outcomes in the program, which are listed below. # Upon completion of this program a student will be able to: Apply and incorporate the elements and principles of design within 1 a digital graphic images and animation Demonstrate visual problem solving that employs appropriate 2 technical skills and techniques. 3 Demonstrate a basic knowledge of the history of digital art and Montgomery College Digital Animation Associate in Applied Science_v2 Page 21
