In this talk, we investigate the effects of non-standard interactions (NSI) in the MINOS experiment based on a full three-flavor neutrino oscillation framework simulation. The simulation was performed using the GLoBES software. The results indicate that the allowed region in the sin(2)(2 theta(23))-Delta m(31)(2) plane is extended due to NSI effects, that there is a degeneracy between the leptonic mixing angle theta(13) and the NSI parameter epsilon(e tau), and that MINOS can put a lower upper bound on sin(2)(2 theta(13)) than CHOOZ only for small values of vertical bar epsilon(e tau)vertical bar.
