This will expose you to more people/research in the area and give you a better idea of what's going on in your intended area of research. Maybe you'll find it less interesting or find something really cool in that specific subfield that you want to do your dissertation on. Then later, when you take a similar course in your graduate program, having this background knowledge will help you absorb material at a deeper level, further improving your foundation in your intended area of work.
