Our beautiful first ladies have a lot in common – they are smart, intelligent, family oriented, and extremely supportive of their husbands. However, there is a tiny detail that differentiates the current first lady, Melania Trump, from other US presidents’ wives. We are talking about her degree, or more accurately, the absence of one.

What is Melania Trump’s education?

Melania Trump is the wife of President Donald Trump and the mother of their 11-year-old son, Barron. Melania was born in Slovenia. At 18, she signed a contract with a modeling agency in France.

Then, as you know, Melania moved to America, where she met her future husband and the current President of the United States, Donald Trump.


Unlike other US first ladies, Melania Trump doesn’t have a college degree. It's true that Mrs. Trump studied architecture and design at the University of Ljubljana for one year, but she dropped out to focus on her modeling career.

According to CBS News and Wikipedia, Melania is not listed in the university's official public records as having graduated with a degree.


What about other first ladies?

As for the other first ladies, all of them have a higher education.

Laura Bush graduated from Southern Methodist University with a Bachelor's degree in education.


Michelle Obama studied at the prestigious Princeton University and majored in sociology. She graduated with distinction and then continued her studies, receiving a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School.


As you see, US first ladies are not only beautiful and sophisticated, but well-educated, too. In our opinion, they all could have run for president and won, just like their smart husbands.

Who knows? Maybe Melania will still get her diploma in the future. After all, it’s never too late to learn!
