Casey has also developed a broader social science course for general education, focusing on the interaction between technology and social systems. This course, like so many other teaching and research interests, highlights his deep commitment to interdisciplinary studies and the pursuit of understanding wherever that path might lead. His research interests include Canadian studies, natural resource policy and environmental thought.

Much of this research entails cooperative agreements with the Bureau of Land Management.
