I believe Computer Science deals more with the very deep technical workings (both mechanical and logical) of a computer. I think it covers a bit of everything, but Security is a specialty within Computer Networking. I'd think they wouldn't focus too much on security in that discipline.

Security isn't a major portion of CIS. Software programming seems to be the standout core mechanic in my colleges CIS program. Security would be geared more toward as Network Engineer.

Actually, what defines "security" varies from school to school.

There's engineering programs, where "security" is essentially "how to implement".

Then there's Systems Security programs, where they don't deal as much with the hardware, and deal more with the policies and decision-making behind the engineering. Another focus in this area is usually computer forensics and dealing with security breaches.
