    Default since VS because

    Dear teachers,
    What is the nuance between "since" and "because"? Why aren't they interchangeable? Would you please give me examples?
    He wanted to travel to Europe because / since (?) he hoped to find a job there.
    Is "since" acceptable in the above sentence? If not really, would you please tell me why?
    Thank you for your help.

    You can use them both IMO, and 'as'.
