The MINOS experiment, operating in the NuMI beam since 2005, has provided the most precise measurement of the atmospheric mass splitting |Δm^2_(32)|, and the recent combination of the ν_μ, ν_e, and atmospheric neutrino samples has provided some evidence of non-maximal mixing, and hints about the neutrino mass hierarchy and the Φ_(23) octant. Construction of the NOνA experiment, situated off-axis in the upgraded NuMI beam, is almost complete. Over the coming years it will have significant power to probe the questions of the mass hierarchy, Φ _(23) octant, and the possibility of CP violation in the lepton sector. This paper gives an overview of the results from MINOS, and of the sensitivity of the NOνA experiment.
