Talk about beauty and brains.

The gorgeous Eva Longoria will be trading in her usual designer attire for a cap and gown in a couple weeks, when she receives her master's degree in Chicano Studies from California State University, Northridge.

"I'm writing my thesis now," the actress told E! News last night at the Lays Do Us A Flavor event. "Hopefully, I'll finish in time!"


Longoria's rep also tells us that the star "enrolled at Northridge three years ago and is receiving her Master's degree in Chicano Studies with her thesis on 'Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers.'" STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.

Commencement will be held in two weeks, and Eva will see a familar face up on stage, since one of the keynote speakers for the ceremony is none other than Desperate Housewives creator and executive producer Marc Cherry, who she's now working with on the new show Devious Maids.

The accomplished celeb tweeted, "I'm very proud of my show Devious Maids, first ever all LATINA cast!!!"

Congratulations, Eva!
