the networking option pretty much assures you that your job won't be outsourced. you can't outsource a job that has a physical component that's required in your location.
the database track doesn't have quite the same outsource proofing. BUT it does have massive profitability if you're good at what you do, find a good job with a good company, and stick with it. DBAs can make boat loads of money because virtually no one does what they do.

Also, If I can't find a job directly into Networking or DBA after school due to only having an AAS, would it be smart to get a help desk or support position and work my way up from there into DBA or Networking?

the biggest thing that any company that's hiring in any IT related field is looking for is experience. they'll usually pay through the nose for someone with experience. however, it's hard to get experience if you can't get a job in the field. an AAS can often get you in the door in a lower level job or if you're lucky like me, into a pretty high level job if it's the right company hiring. then after you trudge through the first few years gaining on the job experience your resume will start looking better and better and the AAS will be much less important.
