In its Mexico edition released Wednesday, Hola magazine quoted Longoria as saying that she wants to "learn more about the history of the country we come from." She didn't say what university she will attend.

Longoria says she also is polishing her Spanish. The Texas native's family is originally from the northern Mexican city of Monterrey.

The actress was in Mexico City last month to take on a Spanish-speaking role for the first time in a Mexican film about kidnapping titled "Days of Grace."
