Fourier analysis is more fundamental, but I don't think topology would necessarily be a complete waste, depending on your goals and tastes. I'm not sure if you'd really need to know about Dirichlet kernels and Fejer kernels and delicate issues of convergence, much more than you would about topology, though. I think you probably come across what you need to know about Fourier series/transforms in the physics curriculum. As far as the more detailed stuff about Fourier series, I'd be a little wary of it if it isn't presented as well as Lanczos does in his book (Discourse on Fourier Series). It could easily become a tedious exercise in putting up with annoying technical garbage that would be mostly a waste of time. So, make sure to check out Lanczos from the library, just to make sure that doesn't happen.
