Linear Algebra for Quantum Physics

Can you get all/most of the knowledge you need of Linear Algebra for QM in a one year course? I know for certain my course also includes eigenvectors and eigenvalues towards the end of the year..

I think such a course will indeed introduce the math needed for understanding a basic introduction to quantum mechanics. Go for it.

But the rabbit-hole goes deep.

It depends upon on you. If you are interested and if you give much time then one year is enough time to cover the required mathematics for QM. Otherwise 5 year is not enough to learn. It depends upon on your concentration.
