Adam didn't say that they have to have " Studies" replaced by "ology", JP. He just said that disciplines whose names ending in "Studies" have to be converted to some kind of -ology. Presumably this would work:

Science and Technology Studies -> Sexology

Or Scientology for a really catchy neologism. And I tend to follow what I interpret as the instructions of the Lord rather literally. You know, just in case. Picked that idea up in Probology.
