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!"

What kind of goofy made up degree is that? Chicano Studies? Let me guess, classes include gettin' across the border, how to get smuggled in a van and how to hide under the hood across the border, and watching countless re-runs of Chico and the Man and the Cisco Kid.
You ignorant T-W-A-T.

That is just very American... the value of Latinas in certain fields? How about the values of women, individuals, people from a certain socio-economic status? Nope, we're still talking about race and pretending race makes a difference and/or presents different talents.

First of all dont hate cause she is going to school, since when is someone trying to become educated a bad thing?
If you have never taken a Chican@ Studies, do not criticize it. Those who think her degree has no value comes from positions of power and privilege, or worst are just plain haters or ignorant individuals.
She has been a supporter of migrant rights, if she wishes to be a spokes person she must be able to understand the issues that many Latin@s, Xican@s, and other communities have faced through the United States.

I can go on and on; but its disgusting what people write. But then again, I assume other people don't have better **** to do.

But im sure Eva and others who are Chican@ Studies major are more than willing to talk about the importance of this particular focus with people who question its validity. If you are trying to have a civil conversation I am down; but if not I dont mind. Chican@ Studies is rooted from the love of people; not the hatred of others.

Some of you say: who cares! I think that it is not about who did it but rather about at what age! I mean it is amazing that there are people who feel ok to go back to college being adults. It is a big responsibility: you have to study just like everybody else, you should work on writing essays (actually I know that they can always order papers at Essay Online Store). So, I think it is great that you are posting such news
