It varies a bit per school (book) and per article. But certainly LNCS 925
contains a number of chapters that should be interesting for someone with
a general CS background and a basic FP course. I know it has been used
in a couple of undergraduate courses on advanced functional programming.

Topics, Authors, LNCS nr:

- Monads, Wadler, 925
- Parser Combinators, Fokker, 925
- Constructor Classes, Jones, 925
- (Monadic) folds (or catamorphisms), Meijer & Jeuring, 925
- Space leaks and heap profiling, Runciman & Rojemo, 1129
- Algorithms and data structures, Okasaki, 1129
- Graph algorithms, Launchbury, 925
- User Interfaces, Carlsson & Hallgren, 925, Peyton Jones & Finne 1129
