  Programme Specification for MA(HONS)in Scottish Ethnology
Ethnology is the discipline that studies the traditional and popular cultures of a community, region or nation.
The Scottish Ethnology programme aims to develop the analytic, critical, communication and creative skills of students by engaging with a broad range of cultural forms and ethnographic materials relating primarily, although by no means exclusively, to Scotland.
The Scottish Ethnology components of each of these joint degrees offer the same educational aims and programme outcomes as the single honours programme, and all joint degree students are required to complete both the level 2 project and the Honours dissertation (or 'Long Essay' in the joint degrees with English or Scottish Literature).

 Ethnology - LoveToKnow 1911
Though the etymology of the words permits in theory of this line of division between ethnology and ethnography, in practice they form an indivisible study of man's progress from the point at which anthropology leaves him.
It covers generally the whole history of the material and intellectual development of man, as it has passed through the stages of (a) hunting and fishing, (b) sheep and cattle tending, (c) agriculture, (d) industry.
In this sense ethnology is the older term for what now is called sociology.

 Discover the Wisdom of Mankind on ethnology   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Ethnology (Greek ethnos: (non-Greek, "barbarian") people) is a genre of anthropological study, involving the systematic comparison of the folklore, beliefs and practices of different societies.
Ethnology has been considered as a scientific discipline since the late 18th century but many of the world's best known minds of all times have been studying various peoples and their traits.
The progress of ethnology, for example with Claude Lévi-Strauss's structural anthropology, led to the criticism of conceptions of a linear progress, or the pseudo-opposition between "societies with histories" and "societies without histories", judged too dependent on a limited view of history as constituted by accumulative growth.
