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!"

Kudos to Eva for putting in the good work, but my son in the southern CA area cannot get into the basic CHEM 101 classes after trying for 4 semesters, necessary for some of the STEM careers she says are so necessary for the country's future. Classes are so impacted, they don't even keep a wait list. I wish I could get my son out of the public colleges, so crowded here. I wonder why???

She got her masters in freeloading the American goverment. She also learned such skills as wiring money back to Mexico, not paying taxes, gang culture in los angeles, welfare 101 and the last course to obtain her masters was to read the book border fence jumping for idiots. What a proud American she must be! :)

Not surprised there is so much negative commentary out there, even when the press tries to run an actual good story, people find a way to turn it into a bad one. And we wonder how the press got this way. They just give people what they want to hear and unfortunately, people don't want to hear about the good things that happen to people. I think it's great she got a Masters, how few celebrities continue to pursue higher education, when they don't have to? She gets credit where it's due.

Not much of an actress......She is planning on going into politics so she needed some sort of lame degree. She should show us all her La Raza card.( Fanatical Hispanic group called THE RACE). She is a member of that hideous group that lies to Hispanic youth telling them SW USA and CALIF really belong to Mexico and they have various angles they seek to make that happen. Flood the borders and the entire USA with illegals..Encourage HUGE families paid for by the US taxpayer. Put rabid , racist people like Longorio in office and breed whitey out. LOOK up their manifesto. Its all there.

Three years to complete a chicano studies degree? I could have completed the course work for that degree working 3 full time jobs, being a mom and having a couple of hobbies. The stupid degrees that universities are handing out now is the problem with education now. Hey Eva, try a chemistry, biology, math degree then get back to me.

She'll be inspiring thousands of Latinas to go into decades of suffocating debt to learn nothing useful. Leftist propaganda doesn't demand much on the job market. Thanks Eva! You're the greatest!

Just a a short message to Eva.

Now that you've got your masters degree in Chicano studies, congrats. But now, you should be smart enough to know to keep your "private" (uh-hum) business covered at all times; or at least, away from photogs and TMZ pervs.
