NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment that uses an upgraded NuMI beam from Fermilab. The two functionally similar, high sampling, liquid scintillator calorimeters are 14 mrad off-axis from the beam, providing a neutrino flux narrowly peaked at around 2 GeV. One of the main physics goals of the experiment is to study the electron (anti)neutrino appearance in a muon (anti)neutrino beam. This will lead to a great opportunity to resolve the neutrino mass hierarchy and a chance to measure the $\delta$ CP-phase in the neutrino sector. Similarly, measurements of the muon (anti)neutrino disappearance probabilities will provide high precision values to $\sin^2{\theta_{23}}$ and $\Delta m^{2}_{32}$ oscillation parameters. A combined analysis measurement will allow a better resolution of the $\theta_{23}$ octant. In this talk, an overview of the NOvA experimental effort will be presented.
