Eva Longoria graduates, earns Master’s degree in Chicano Studies

Congratulations, Eva! Eva Longoria has officially wrapped up her post-graduate studies, earning a degree in Chicano Studies from California State University, Northridge.

It’s the second degree for Longoria, who already holds an undergraduate degree in kinesiology from Texas A&M University-Kingsville. The 38-year-old actress decided to pursue her graduate studies when she was still filming “Desperate Housewives,” sharing with Jay Leno that she wanted to “study immigration.”

"In my cap and gown with mom and dad! I look like Harry Potter!" tweeted Longoria.

“I wanted to be literate on everything,” Longoria shared on “The Tonight Show,” who also called herself “the old one” in her classes.

Age aside, the graduate degree is cause for celebration. “Big day today!!!” tweeted Longoria of her college graduation on Wednesday. “Very excited to graduate for my Master’s degree in Chicano Studies! You’re never too old or too busy to continue your education!”

But unlike many other college graduates this time of year, Longoria won’t be enjoying a summer vacation. She’s set to promote “Devious Maids,” a series she’s produced about Latina maids in Beverly Hills that premieres on Lifetime on Sunday, July 28.
