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!"

Laughing at all the trolls on this thread. The message is that you can always go back to finish your education. It's never too late. This woman is not hurting for money you asshats. She doesn't need a degree to work. She did it for the simple desire of learning. I am sure will be crushed by the TMZ "think tank" disses.

Some bleeding heart sheep named Nancy keeps replying negatively to the smart posters here who expose longoria as the racist she is. Hilarious. Nancy is probably one of the obamazombies who ignores his murder, high treason and mountain of crimes because he's partially black. Welcome to new America , land of the free (loaders) and home of the bottom barrel.

She learned jumping fences, cutting coke with a welfare card, human trafficking with a station wagon.

I didnt go to school for me to have my Chicano knowledge. Thirty of them live in a 1 bedroom apartment, they all take 1 car to work and the driver has no license or insurance, they work without paying taxes, they have as many kids as possible and get the taxpayers to pay for every birth, they like tortillas and beans, they all work for the same concrete company and they wreck every communnity that they live in. Other than that they are good people.

Congrats Eva! You can now be manager at a taco bell in the barrio. I just got my masters today in de bating. I think mine can get a better job than Taco bell though.

Congratulations to Ms. Longoria!!! Legitimately obtaining a Master's Degree is "VERY DEMANDING" and requires a "GREAT DEAL OF FOCUS"!!! Perhaps, now she'll use her knowledge to encourage K-12 students to pursue STEM based studies. She's a "REAL WINNER" in my book!!!

I hope this means she is now moving back to Mexico where she belongs. She'll be happier there.

This women needs to move back to her "own" country. She has no respect for the USA, and has repeatedly displayed and spoken that.
