Retiree Programs

TELOS means fulfillment.

Telos means “fulfillment” in Greek.
The telos of an acorn is an oak tree.

Bellevue College Continuing Education offers a variety of compelling and fascinating courses of interest to retirees. Topics range from ancient art to modern technology. The retirees’ classes are offered during weekday daytime hours. Our TELOS program, operating since 1976, is designed to fit the lifestyle and interests of retirees. The emphasis of TELOS is on learning, growth, and fun — not performance. Our non-graded, non-credit classes are taught in a relaxed atmosphere. They generally meet once a week Monday through Thursday. Fall, Winter, and Spring quarter classes are eight weeks in duration. There is also a limited Summer program.

Popular past classes have included Views of the News (about current events), Geology of the Pacific Northwest, The Relationship Between Science and Religion, Creative Writing, T’ai Chi, and My Smart Phone: More Than Making Calls!



And if you have an idea for a new course you’d like to teach for TELOS, we’d like to hear from you.
