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!"

That is just BS, it is like getting your masters in pottery. You don't see any programs in Irish studies or Russian or Polish or Swedish studies. What can you do with it NOTHING. Lets get her masters in criminal law, accounting, biology or even chemistry. This degree is not real, it is a BS degree.

she worked hard to get a masters degree and should be very proud. some people are so hateful, i guess if she had gotten GED or passed drug test, you could relate or appreciate her accomplishments.

A master's degree in Chicano and Chicana Studies? She could have been just as unemployable with at bachelor's degree in Chicano and Chicana Studies. This is just like Brooke Shields getting a degree in French literature. It's good both of these women are loaded and they don't have to rely on feeding themselves based on their education.

Did she accidentally flash a nipple or expose her vagina? If not then I don't believe it's really her. LOL
