Music theory is a great course for anyone learning to know what they really are doing on their instrument. To better understand the fundamental elements of theory it is a good idea to learn basic piano as well as the course gets into chordal harmony and voice leading especially in jazz.

Advice for students:
Take a basic piano course or pedagogy class. It helps so much to know piano, chords etc., when having to do theory homework, key signatures, notation and all the above.
