While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are unique candidates, how do they compare education-wise to former presidents?
The top majors among past presidents are history, economics, international affairs and political science, according to a report from the career training website trade-schools.net.
Clinton majored in political science at Wellesley College and has a law degree from Yale, while Trump majored in economics at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
The most popular universities for presidents are Harvard, Yale, the U.S. Military Academy, Princeton, and the College of William and Mary. And, while 75 percent of presidents didn’t have a postgraduate degree, 28 percent didn’t have any college education.

Hillary Clinton doesn’t like animal cruelty either.
MoveOn.org Political Action and the Humane Society Legislative Fund have teamed up for an online ad highlighting what they refer to as Clinton’s “expansive pro-animal campaign platform.”
They’re calling the campaign “I’m With Purr.” Sound familiar? The Animal Planet cable channel has the same slogan for its adoption campaign surrounding the election.
