    To whom it may concern,
    My name is Abraham from Ethiopia and studying Pastoral Theology in Austria and i have already Master in Pastoral Theology. I wanted to change my field and study social science because i am working in the Church und i am more interested in this field. In Ethiopia theology is not acknowledged by the government and theologians get very less salary. It would be better if i had chance of studying social science here in Austria.
    Is it possible to apply for PHD? Thanks a lot for your immediate response.
    With best regards
    Abraham Abera Orgino
