Do you need Linear Alg. for Modern Alg?

Hey guys, I just registered for my classes for next semester and I am taking both Linear Algebra and Modern Algebra. After a long talk with my advisor, he convinced me that taking them both together is doable. I did need to get departmental clearance to take them both together, but I am just wondering if this is a wise decision? How much Linear Algebra is needed for Modern Algebra? Thanks.

No worry, you'll be able to follow modern algebra and linear algebra classes at the same time (provided that the modern algebra class starts from the scratch; very often, it assumes you already know the basic notions of group/ring/field theory, but maybe this is not the case for your class).

As far as I know the course will start from scratch because I know currently nothing of the subject, so your reply is reassuring. Thanks!
