My college is expanding the Information Technology department to include Networking and Security as well as the CISCO Security. In my research online I have found different information for each everywhere I have looked. What I am wondering is: in a nutshell what is the difference (beyond one being CISCO focused, I get that much), and which one would be more beneficial. Because they are new programs that haven't been formalized my school cannot give me any information beyond what classes I can take now that are guaranteed to be in them. Thanks.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Without further information we can't tell you which is better. However, by name, I guess the first one is better.
Why? Because it seems to be general whereas the second is only Cisco related.
You can do the first one and then get certified in Cisco.
