OXFORD, England, May 10 (UPI) -- Dr. Chelsea Clinton graduated today from Oxford University, earning a PhD in international relations. Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined Chelsea's husband Marc Mezvinsky to celebrate with Chelsea.

Clinton is already well-decorated academically, studying undergrad at Stanford university and earning master's degrees from Oxford and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health.

"She'll have as many as her parents do — combined," Former President Clinton told Jimmy Kimmel in April. "When she was younger, the way all kids are, she thought she knew more than I did about everything. But alas, in my dotage, it turned out to be true!"

For former President Clinton the ceremony was a return to roots - he studied as an Oxford Rhode scholar from 1968-1970.

In addition to her ongoing humanitarian efforts around the globe, the 34-year-old Clinton currently works as a special correspondent for NBC News.
