Eva Longoria


I'm a Master of Chicano Studies

5/23/2013 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Eva Longoria had an interesting Wednesday night ... she GRADUATED from a master's program at Cal State University Northridge ... and TMZ has the video!

First off ... this was NO honorary degree -- 38-year-old Eva quietly busted her ass for the past 3 years (taking classes IN PERSON) to earn a master's degree in Chicano and Chicana Studies from CSUN.

A rep for Longoria tells us ... Eva began the program while she was still working on "Desperate Housewives" and found time to complete her schoolwork on the set.

We're told Eva's thesis was titled, "Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers." FYI -- STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

After the ceremony, Eva celebrated like any other student -- she went out to dinner with her parents!

She also tweeted about the graduation yesterday -- writing, "Big day today!!! Very excited to graduate for my Master's degree in Chicano Studies! You're never too old or too busy to continue your education!"

The value of latinos took three YEARS to complete? Funny. But seriously, good job, Eva. It's something no one can ever take away.

Good this she has an acting career as he masters degree is worthless career wise. Unless you are planning a career in Anti-American activities ... like illegal immigration.

Congratulations!!! This is HUGE because unlike so many celebrities she actually worked for her masters degree. Unless you have received a masters degree and know the work it takes to get one at a real not for profit university don't scoff at her hard work. I solute anyone willing to work hard to get an education. She didn't have to do this because she's beyond rich but took the time out to do it anyway.

Considering she went commando at Cannes and showed off her 'bajingo', I'm guessing Eva is butt naked under that gown.

Funny thing, her ancestors invaded Mexico & the South Western USA. Which is how her family got the land they have now.

Saw the picture of her in the gown and also wondered if she was wearing underwear.

Congrats just the same. It's a tough job getting a masters.

If she could now stop with the head looking over the shoulder pose.

In her case, she exagerates the move so much, she looks like she has a broken neck and she has done it too often and now looks desperate when she does it.
