Beauty and brains! Eva Longoria had a whirlwind week in Cannes and has now topped it off with a big accomplishment: graduating with a master's degree at California State University.
"Big day today!!!" the former Desperate Housewives star tweeted on Wednesday, May 22. "Very excited to graduate for my Master's degree in Chicano Studies! You're never too old or too busy to continue your education!"

Longoria's former costars and friends quickly congratulated her on the news.
Marcia Cross tweeted, "Huge congratulations on your graduation today!!!! From Canne to Cap and Gown. You are really something. Xoxo m." Bill Rancic wrote, "Congrats Eva!"
Jane Fonda, who attended Longoria's charity event at the Cannes Film Festival wrote of how inspired she is by the actress on a blogpost.
"She does these things with such ease and grace," Fonda wrote, noting that Longoria left Cannes early Wednesday morning to return to California for her graduation.

Longoria, 38, also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology from Texas A&M University.
According to California State University's website, Chicano Studies is a "field that advances a critical understanding of the Chicana/o and Latina/o experience in the United States. Courses reflect a multidisciplinary approach to the understanding of Chicana/o and Latina/o histories, politics, culture, language and education."
While her exact class schedule isn't known -- Longoria seems to have been treated just like any other student in the program. In an interview at the beginning of May with E! News, Longoria said that she was hard at work on her thesis.
Why not just hand out a Ph.D?
Did she wear panties?
what she received was not an education.
Hmmm... a degree in self-study
I’m guessing “Chicano Studies” has less to do with a serious study of Latin and Central American history and peoples and more to do with training people to be pissed off at America.
Was it a Masters in Puddle Piddling or Panty Passing???
IOW a junk degree in illegal alien studies.
Believe in education
So they go to night school
and take Spanish
and they get a B
It's not JUST Chicano Studies, she got much more out of this.
She minored in basket weaving.
I got one of those in my last Cracker Jack Box. I threw mine away.
And her family history is full-blown Texan. Her family has been in Texas since it became independent.
Evidently, her thesis was titled “Keeping a dry back while swimming the Rio Grande”.
What a joke! When does she get a job with the Obama administration?
I want a Master’s Degree for learning about my own heritage!
This is obviously good joke material, but on a serious note, this is an example how the left have debased and bastardized virtually every institution, in this case, the advanced academic degree.
Now thats funny! Takes me way back, but its very...smoggy
but that smart Chelsea Clintoon finished Stanford in less than 3 yrs.....
¿Quiere patatas fritas con que?
Who the F cares? No one cared I got a masters degree being a single mom.
Looking for a job with a liberal Latino victim group, no doubt.

Damn, I should hook a generator to my eyeballs. I could single-handedly solve the energy shortage.
I thought keneisiology was your basic jock degree for moving muscles while on the team and learning where your Achilles tendons are. :o)

” Longoria said that she was hard at work on her thesis.”
I’m sure that’s coming up next...I wonder if her new alma mater, Cal State Northride, will be releasing her master’s thesis [sarc] I’d be greatly surprised if this program required much more than showing up (on occasion) and writing a few militant term papers that La Raza would be proud of.
Probably similar to Chelsea Clinton’s matriculation at Stanford. As I recall, she missed a good portion of her junior and senior years to help Hillary work on her Senate campaign, but still graduated on time. Then, she drank her way through grad school in the UK, and at last report, was working on some sort of doctoral program.
I’m guessing Ms. Longoria’s attractive face will be appearing in various promotional materials for the school. Not a bad deal for Cal State Northridge; get a celeb endorsement in exchange for a worthless graduate degree.
Chicano studies PHD final exam.
1). White people are bad (T/F)
2) Describe why white people are bad.
Sounds like she’s qualified to run for governor of Aztlan.
Or mayor of New York City....
Like’s like Paula Dean getting a BA in Southern Cooking.
WOW! All the more reason to study American and Texas history instead of the culture of alien invaders.
Now we are getting somewhere!
In East LA you can probably pick up a piece of "Chicano Culture" in about twenty minutes and for about a thousand dollars.
Pffffffffft! I have a PhD in chicano studies... I was born and raised in El Paso! Orale!
I watched “Chico and the Man” once. Where’s my doctorate degree??
“Congratulations. Here is your mop. This has nothing to do your graduating with a Master’s Degree in ‘Chicano Studies’, and everything to do with your graduating with a Master’s Degree.”
Kinesiology is no joke. Good friend of mine majored in kinesiology and went on to get his PhD in biomechanics. He went on to develop a human performance lab at a university that is one of the preeminent facilities of its kinds for human motion and performance. They study and develop world class athletes there.
