Eva Longoria Graduates With a Master's Degree in 'Chicano Studies'
US Weekly ^ | May 22, 2013 AT 6:40PM | Brittany Galla

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.

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.

A Masters in Chicano Studies is Crackerjack box prize material. A BS in kinesiology might be a bit more impressive.

You think this degree doesn't make her marketable?

It's not JUST Chicano Studies, she got much more out of this.

She minored in basket weaving.

Evidently, her thesis was titled “Keeping a dry back while swimming the Rio Grande”.

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.

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.

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.
