Abstract: A Galois correspondence for finitely generated field extensions $ k/h$ is presented in the case characteristic $ h = p \ne 0$. A field extension $ k/h$ is Galois if it is modular and $ h$ is separably algebraically closed in $ k$. Galois groups are the direct limit of groups of higher derivations having rank a power of $ p$. Galois groups are characterized in terms of abelian iterative generating sets in a manner which reflects the similarity between the finite rank and infinite rank theories of Heerema and Deveney [9] and gives rise to a theory which encompasses both. Certain intermediate field theorems obtained by Deveney in the finite rank case are extended to the general theory.
