We investigate the effects of a magnetic field with low to intermediate strength on several spectroscopic properties of the sodium atom. A model potential is used to describe the core of sodium, reducing the study of the system to an effective one-particle problem. All states with principal quantum numbers n=3,4,5,6 and 7 are studied and analysed. A grid of twenty values for the field strength in the complete regime a.u. is employed. Ionisation energies, transition wavelengths and their dipole oscillator strengths are presented.
