Perhaps not, but one of the topics I am interested in (probability) relies on it. Maybe foundations of math refers to something more technical than I knew, but measure theory is the foundation of some maths, right?

The problem with that reasoning is that all theories are the foundation of some maths. Your post is probably better titled "Learning the fundamentals of math" as opposed to "foundations", which evokes things like metamathematics and logic and computability foundational issues.
