Eva Longoria

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!"

Where can I get my Master's degree in Caucasian studies? I now know you can get one in African & Chicano Studies, but no Caucasian Studies. Blacks and hispanics are racists and it's time for caucasians to ask politcians for special rights, just like other races.

READING THESE COMMENTS HAS CONFIRMED THAT TMZ STAFF AND READERS ARE FILLED WITH UNINTELLIGENT RACIST FOOLS.

Here's why everyone is ripping on her. She's so wrapped up in her liberal Hollywood bubble, she's lost touch with reality, as is the case with most celebrities. It's fine for people to have different political opinions, but this woman said some extremely nasty and disparaging things about people who weren't marching in lockstep with her misguided opinions.


As far a I can tell, there aren't any specific degrees that focus on Caucasians in America from European decent. The fact that there is a "degree" for Chicano studies and the fact that she pursued it, shows that she is a racist. It's part of the whole liberal mindset where they think that America is basically an unfair place and that they're owed something, even though they've been provided opportunities that they would never have in any other country. It's offensive.


At the end of the day, this only further displays her ignorance though. "White people" don't need a special degree program which displays an agenda. They usually just call it HISTORY.

And if Taylor Swift graduated with a masters in "white studies" She'd be on blast for being a nazi racist... Hypocritical world we live in.

That's awesome, and it's really inspiring that she did it while working on DH. She has amazing focus and a strong work ethic. The hours on TV sets are rough. Congratulations to Eva!

Success does not stem from diversity, and her degree is absolutely worthless.

I love reading negative comments from people who are idiots! She already had BA in Kinesology from Texas A&M, which allowed her to get into the Masters program at Northridge. She attended class like any other student for 3 years, worked and graduated! She or any other person, how could you not be happy for her !

Chicano studies? Is that even a thing? Maybe I can get a degree in white people studies. Glad to see she studied something challenging and new.

One of my daughters couldn't even get Into Bakersfield State, even having a B'A in Mass communication from Fresno State w/o Getting approval from three strangers at Bakersfield State to okay her proposal to even get into the school. She emailed over 40 emails including a The professor and head of the Mba graduate studies studies Only to get a snippy email saying that she really didn't have the time to deal with her . How's that for treating a university graduate?? You try your hardest to get in , do everything that's required and no one cares. Shame on Bakersfield state. Maybe if she had a different last name things would've been different
