NOvA is a long-baseline experiment built to search for oscillations of muon neutrinos into electron neutrinos. Although this phenomenon has been measured by the T2K experiment in Japan, the rate observed is higher than what was expected from indirect measurements in reactor neutrino experiments. This high rate may be explained through a combination of CP violation, neutrino coherent forward scattering, and favorable values of the mixing parameter related to muon neutrino disappearance measurements. Understanding the contributions from each of these mechanisms to electron neutrino appearance is one of the main goal of NOvA and the worldwide long-baseline neutrino program in general. In this talk I will present a summary of the NOvA experiment and what to expect from the upcoming first results.
