environmental studies-- don't know
environmental science -- science curriculum with emphasis on environmental engineering, biology, geology????
environmental engineer - an engineer with a BS in Environmental Engineering. It is a lot like civil engineering with more geology and/or chemistry.
environmental scientist - and environmental engineering wanna be that can't hack the math or physics. If you aren't smart enough to graduate in engineering, you will be called a "scientist"
environmentalist - a whacked out person that values the mother earth without regard to the impact on humanity. For instance, an environmentalist will oppose building a hospital near a wetlands because of an endangered gopher turtle.
environmental biologist - studies more of the biology of environmental science. Bioassays on fish, wetlands, etc...
environmental consultant - a person that is paid to offer environmental engineering, biology or science experience. Can perform remediation, assessment or permitting of commercial projects or transactions.Source(s): hope these help. Some are dripping in sarcastic opinion (I am an engineer and consultant).
