The department qualifies bachelors and masters of Romance and Germanic philology since 2010. The program is aimed at training philologists, teachers of German, French, and Spanish. The department provides an opportunity to learn German as the first and second foreign language, as well as Spanish and French as the second language. Graduates of the specialty Philology receive diplomas with qualifications of Bachelor of Philology, teacher of German and English languages, and literature in secondary schools and preschools.

The history of the Department of Romance and Germanic Philology began in 1999 when the Department of Modern Languages and Classic Philology was created, which was involved in teaching Modern Languages (French, German, Spanish, Chinese and Polish) and Classic Philology (Latin). In 2002 the department was transformed into the Department of Romance Philology and later on September 1, 2010 into the Department of Romance and Germanic Philology.

In 2001, supported by Goethe Institute, the German Language Center was opened, where representatives the German ethnic minority are taught, as well as anyone interested in improving their German. All the teachers at the German Center have C2 international certificates. Every three years the center is being tested for compliance with the quality standards of teaching German developed by the Goethe Institute. The teachers of German at Petro Mohyla Black Sea National University develop test patterns for students and are active in teaching and research work with students, who take top places at national Ukrainian competitions.

The German Language Center is accredited at Goethe Institute in Munich. Every year native speakers from Germany and Austria are teaching there. There are film clubs, Deutschclub, and workshops for school teachers. The teachers of the German section of the department facilitate students’ participation in the program Au-Pair, as well as their continuing education at universities in Germany. Classes are given in specially equipped rooms. The German section cooperates with German editions, such as «Kornelsen», «Hueber», «Langenscheidt». Housed by the Center of Science and Art , in cooperation with lecturers of DAAD and the Bosch Foundation, various workshops for teachers  German are held.

The French section of the department cooperates with the French Embassy in Ukraine and the Alliance Française Organization, allowing teachers to undergo a training course in France. Moreover, at the French section native speakers from France do their teaching training (from such universities as Sorbonne-nouvelle-Paris 3, université de Toulouse, université de Montpellier). Besides, the Spanish language center is actively working. The teachers of Spanish are members of the Hispanists Association of Ukraine.
