The NOvA experiment is a long baseline neutrino experiment
which will study oscillations of muon-type to electron-type neutrinos. Its primary goals are to measure parameters of the neutrino mixing matrix, resolve the neutrino mass hierarchy question, and to study CP violation effects. NOvA consists of a Near Detector on the Fermilab site where the muon neutrinos are produced, and a Far Detector 810 km distant, both of similar construction and both situated 14 mr off-axis to the neutrino beam. The complete 15 kton Far Detector and 220 ton Near Detector will reach full data-taking capability in 2014. This talk will focus on the physics capabilities of the NOvA experiment and on its
current status and schedule.
