My course called "Structure and History of English Words" (and its predecessor, "Words and Meaning") has a lot of etymology (and etymythology) in it, but it's not an etymology course per se.  Other courses with similar coverage, such as those taught by Suzanne Kemmer at Rice and (if he's still doing it) Will Leben at Stanford are similar in this respect.
