It may be a case of language drift rather than dialect.

専門 means 'speciality' so if you ask 「専門は何ですか」 the person replying ought to name a subject of which they have already acquired a significant degree of knowledge. A 専門家 is a professional in their given field.
専攻 is used more like 'major' or 'specialization.' It's something that you study. You might not be an expert on it, but you are on your way there.
