MINOS/MINOS+ is an accelerator neutrino experiment that studies oscillation phenomena over a 735 km baseline by using the NuMI beamline. From 2005 to 2012, the MINOS experiment recorded beam data that was primarily taken in the low-energy NuMI configuration. After an extended shutdown the beam resumed operation in 2013 in a medium-energy configuration marking the start of operations for the MINOS+ experiment. In this paper, results using the MINOS and MINOS+ data samples are presented. These results include the measurement of three flavor oscillation parameters and limits on sterile neutrinos assuming a 3+1 neutrino mixing model.
