My school only required calculus (up to multivariable calc.), differential equations, linear algebra and a third year physics course I haven't taken yet called "methods in theoretical physics".

Looking at the math courses offered I see a few options but I can't tell which would be best suited for a career in physics.

There's a course on Complex Variables and another on Partial Differential Equations. These would be fairly easy to fit in my schedule since I have all the prerequisites already.

Then there's a couple courses on Abstract Algebra and the Real Analysis > Topology thread.

There are many more but those are the ones I think may be useful. I can take two of these at most without overloading my schedule. If you could tell me anything about these courses and how useful they will be for me (in the near future as I'm likely to forget things after a year or two) then I'd very much appreciate it. Or would this be a waste of time and I'd be better off taking some extra computer science or doing nothing at all?

Thanks
