Lattice theory. Actually just the part about "continuous partial orders"
and "least fixed points" suffice. It is hard to find a math course on
lattice theory that spends time on continuous partial orders; it is
easier to find a CS course on denotational semantics, which covers the
necessary math.
I don't think topology is much needed for Haskell. Whatever little is
needed manifests as lattice theory already. Topology has other uses in
CS, but take note that topological spaces relevant to CS are seldom
Hausdorff, whereas most math courses spend all the time on Hausdorff spaces.
