The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) is one of the two colleges that evolved out of the first undergraduate unit of UP in Mindanao, the College of Arts and Sciences. Its initial undergraduate offerings were BA English (Creative Writing) and BA Social Science (Behavioral Science). The first program was adopted from UP Diliman, the other from UP Manila. When Diploma in Urban and Regional Planning (DURP) was placed under its administration, it became its first and only graduate offering. (It is now under the School of Management).

The UP Mindanao Dance Ensemble is the resident company of the University, attached to the Department of Human Kinetics.

The CHSS is presently headed by Dean Maria Stella R. Salazar whose term is from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2016.
