SDSU will relocate film school to new Chula Vista campus
San Diego State University has agreed to move its Film and TV program south.
Construction on a planned $89 million dollar campus in Chula Vista is set to begin next year.
The move marks a significant change, not only for the university but also for the city of Chula Vista, which has long sought to bring four-year universities to the South Bay.
SDSU will partner with Southwestern College to construct the new campus, which educators hope will serve as a hub for independent filmmaking in the region.
"We're going to be one of the highest-level film schools in the country, if not the world," SDSU lecturer Jeff Deverett, said.
