Larry Nackerud’s primary teaching and research interests explore the formulation of social welfare policies and the applied practice of social work. He became interested in the mix of policy and practice while working as a child protection worker on a reservation in northern Montana. His interest intensified during his years working as a clinical social worker in the state psychiatric hospital of Alaska. He focused on the public policy area of U.S. immigration and refugee policy after the completion of his doctoral studies in the Texas-Mexico border region. In his teaching and research Nackerud pays a great deal of attention to the elements of research methodology, particularly the use of an interpretive inquiry paradigm, different sampling strategies, and combining quantitative and qualitative methods.
