I have completed my B.Sc. in math and will be starting M.Sc. math in a few months. During my undergraduate classes I found the real analysis and general topology courses the most interesting and the algebra courses(especially linear algebra and ring theory) not so much. Since I have a few months before I am able to consult a professor in person, I am undecided on what I should study in the meantime. I am tempted to focus exclusively on the real analysis and general topology topics but not if I would be expected to maintain an equal understanding of the algebra topics in my further studies.
Can I focus my efforts solely on the analysis topics I find interesting and only study algebra just to pass my classes or would it be better to focus on both equally, in case further studies/research in analysis will inevitably require me to truly understand and appreciate algebra?
