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!"

"Chicano Studies" isn't a real degree. None of the "studies" programs are worth the toilet paper they're printed on.

Well done! Got my BA there. The Chicano Studies department was groundbreaking when I was at CSUN, and it seems to still have lots going for it. Good for you, Eva, BA, MA. Going to go for the Ph.D.?

wtf is chicano studies???? I am working on my bachelor's in Electrical Engineering and that's a real degree. Her degree sounds about as useful as an art studies major, something easy to just show you went to school to not work towards something that really applies to work in the public or private sector

A completely useless degree. Race hustling at its best.

"Success STEMS From Diversity"

No, no it doesn't.

Good for her! It's nice to see a celebrity with a few living brain cells.

So this means that she can finally read and write now? Too bad that hocking cat food and potato chips is all we can find for her to do. And too bad also, that she probably didn't take one course for this degree. Must be nice.....

That was probably a really hard topic for her to study. Big woop. Go get a degree in a subject that isn't discussed around your dinner table every night.
